|Riding the Triple at Labrador.|
Alec is a member of the Ithaca College club alpine race team, and Labrador was his home mountain. He visited many other mountains in the area for races including Toggenburg, Greek Peak and Bristol Mountain.

Most of the ski areas in central upstate New York are 'medium sized'. They offer around 1000 feet of vertical and most offer night skiing. While smaller in size, many (like Greek Peak and Bristol) offer high speed quad lifts. For our Maine readers, Labrador was like a "Mini Mt. Abram". Not quite as big but a similar feel with fixed griped chairs and old school feel. It is usually quite cold in this neck of the woods so snowmaking is key and they offer snowmaking coverage on most of the trails. Labrador has a roomy base lodge that was filled with kids participating in after school programs... some better behaved than others as usual!
